    Charge Syndrome

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone had ever heard of this? It's the reason I was born with hearing and visual deficits. My left ear and eye are worse than the right ones. Does anyone know how you keep potential employers(I'm trying to get a job) from underestimating you just for not hearing as well? The resulting accent may cause some bias issues. Apparently there are still people out there who assume that if you can't hear well, you must be mentally deficient as well.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    I say impress them with what you say then. Show them why they need you for the job.
    We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore on Christ's behalf: 'Be reconciled to God!!'

    Just come right out and explain it to them and tell them why you do have certain problems that you are intelligent, diligent, and capable

    I don't want to call people out on it if there is another reason they are behaving that way. Anyway, my lack of experience is the bigger issue. Retail doesn't seem to like hiring folk's with a Master's degree. Good luck finding a library job! Anyways, I was curious if anyone knew about CHARGE syndrome.

    Bill, I was giving a solution, not looking for a job.

    Your behaviour to me and to her is gross.

    I'm not interested in your "offer". I am not interested in talking about my job situation.

    I remember seeing a photo of a person who was deaf on one side. She had a "mute" button tatooed by that ear (so looked like the mute icon on your pc)
